HEE award success

The Trust won a number of awards at the Health Education England Awards which celebrates and recognises excellence and inspiring educators in the East Midlands.

There were a number of successful nominations from NUH, which shows the great work and dedication of our staff who deliver good quality, passionate and inspiring training and education to colleagues.

Peter Homa, NUH Chief Executive, said: "Many congratulations to each of our winners. It is pleasing to see not only the efforts of our education teams being recognised, but also the long- term contribution that Mark Henley has made during his career. His work in Nottingham and beyond has made a significant difference to clinical colleagues and the patients we serve.

"These awards recognise the importance NUH places on education and continuously building on best practice and learning to provide the best possible care and experience to our patients, their families and carers."

Here are the NUH winners:

Life Time Achievement award -Mark Henley, Consultant Cleft Surgeon

What they said: "Mark has been a key educator on a local and national level in Plastic Surgery. Mark's expertise, patience and ability to communicate a clear rationale on the complex multi-disciplinary management of cleft lip and palate is inspirational. His level of care is uncompromising and excellent in every aspect and he has an infectious passion for what he does and the patients he cares for."

Educational Administrator of the Year -Nick Kythreotis, Undergraduate Manager

What they said: "Nick Kythreotis is very dedicated to this job and works tirelessly to ensure that students get the best experience during their placements at NUH. Nick's contribution to undergraduate medical education is invaluable." 

Mentor of the Year (Nursing and Midwifery) -Kate Musson, Clinical Educator in Oncology

What they said: "Kate has an amazing effect on the nurses who are new to the Oncology department or are newly qualified.  Kate supports the ward staff in providing the best education and support for these nurses.  The ward managers wonder how they could manage without her: -  " Invaluable"  "A godsend"  " credit where it's due - she's made a real difference". Kate has only been qualified for 7 years and fully deserves to be recognized for the impact she has had on the educational developments within oncology and beyond.    

Educational Team of the Year -Frank Coffey, Director and Consultant in Emergency Medicine and DREEAM(Department of Research and Education in Emergency Medicine)

What they said: "DREEAM has developed a regional and national reputation for academic innovation and excellence.   An example of the clinical emphasis in DREEAM is the cohort of volunteer simulated patients (SPs) who have been trained to simulate acute illness and trauma.  SPs are integral to the educational activity of DREEAM and their contribution is positively evaluated by learners with comments such as 'the actors were excellent' and 'it was great to learn with such realistic scenarios'"

Further recognition was given to:

City Hospital Recovery Department - originally nominated for Placement of the year (Community, Mental Health and Acute)
